Crisp white sheets, shiny white marble, bright white walls – The Marmara Park Avenue is your very own sleek white canvas when visiting New York’s most iconic borough. This high-rise certainly boasts a flair of its own. Accommodations are sleek and unique, thanks to custom furnishings, local art and thoughtful extras – including individual iPad Airs, connected to guest services 24/7, with the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. The 295-square-foot Guest rooms sit on floors 12 through 17 and feature a Murphy queen bed, while 310-square-foot Deluxe guestrooms, on the same floors, feature a king bed and wet bar.The 676-square-foot One-Bedroom lofts come with more closet space, fully equipped kitchens and stainless-steel appliances. Each of these has a king bed with premium bedding. The wellness center is a highlight: there’s a 800-square-foot subterranean lap pool as well as a semi-warm relaxation room, experience shower, and Turkish hammam on hand to help you decompress. If you’d rather work up a sweat, hit the fitness center, which features state-of-the-art equipment. The hotel’s best feature, though, is the address – and you’ll soon find the Marmara as suited for taking front and center as letting you take Manhattan.
In the Area
With its proximity to Grand Central, just over 10 blocks away, and its location on the top end of the trendy up-and-coming NoMad (north of Madison Square Park) neighborhood, The Marmara Park Avenue puts you right in the middle of things. Also stay near iconic attractions like the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue shops, the aforementioned park (a local favorite) and world-renowned restaurants and bars. These are available in surrounding Midtown, while the numerous subway lines from the iconic train station will take you to pretty much any other neighborhood.
How to Get There
I would definitely consider staying here again. Room choice is important. This aparthotel has a fanstastic upmarket swimming pool, sauna and gym. Room choice is very important though. For me it works if you go for a loft suite - this given space and washing machine, fridge cooker etc - all high end, a real feel of NY living. Bedroom only are a little small. Can be expensive unless you secure one of their offers. Staff very friendly. Free local calls
This is my second time at this hotel, great location, lovely well appointed rooms, fabulous roof terrace in the converted penthouse, great facilities. Staff are pleasant but not terribly knowledgeable but I am struggling to find fault it was very good
First impression of this hotel was the light and airy reception area and check in was efficient. Our room appeared very modern but once we had been in it for a few hours our opinion changed of the practicality of it. The bed was a drop down which fitted tight to one wall, was very high and the gap at the top was wide so pillows fell into it. The one chair in the room was mainly metal - no cushion and most uncomfortable.
We asked to be moved and it took 2 nights before we were allocated a deluxe room with mini kitchen and well stocked bathroom. This was a most comfortable room to return to after long days sightseeing.
Breakfasts were generous in size if expensive but we just shared one between us as there was plenty of food for both!
The hotel was ideally situated as we were able to walk to places like Times Square, Macy's, Empire State Building etc and the blocks are easily navigated.
An Indian and Italian restaurant was a very short walk away and both served very good meals.
This was a comfortable hotel and we enjoyed our stay BUT ensure you book a room with a 'proper ' bed unless you are happy with one tight against the wall!!
My review and scores are based on the nights we spent in the upgraded room.
